Estimation Station
Problem 1.
My initial thought on this problem was that it was extremely creative. I liked the conversion from cups to whole buckets worth of flour for cookies.
The dimensions of the bucket was very helpful because it gives you the volume of the whole bucket. The picture of the bowl, that contains 2 cups of flour is also very helpful because it shows how much 2 cups is in relation.
 It would have been more helpful if the bucket dimensions, told you how many cups can fit inside the bucket.
 My estimate is that it could make 840 cookies. I am confident that it is reasonable because I think it takes 6 cups t cover one small layer at the bottom. Then I think the bucket can fit about 20 layers of the flour so I did 6 cups X 20 layers. Then I multiplied 7 times by 120.

Problem 2.
 My initial thought is that this problem totally relates to the creator. I liked the originality.
 The part that explained the amount of weight the quad copter can carry is extremely helpful. With that given information, you can determine how many it will take to pick up a car.
It would be more helpful if it gave the weight of the car it was trying to carry.
My estimate is that it would take 500 quad copters to lift a car. If each could take 5 pounds, and a car weighs about 2,500 pounds, It will take 500 copters.

Problem 3.
My initial thought of this is that this person related the problem to the things he truly loves; doughnuts and music.
 The radius of both objects is super helpful when finding the area of both objects.
 It cannot be any more helpful. It gives all the necessary information.
 My estimate of the area of the record is 36(3.14) and the area of the doughnut is 9(3.14).

Problem 4.
 My initial thought of this problem was that it was s'cute! It was very fitting for Maddy to write about coffee because she loves it!
 The pictures of both bowls next to each other is very helpful because it gives me a perspective of how much 20 coffee beans looks like.
 It would be more helpful if I had a cup of coffee when doing this.
 I would estimate that the bowl on the right has 60 coffee beans because it seems like it is triple the amount on the left.

Problem 5.
My initial thought of the problem was that it was creative, and it was helpful because there was a picture to go along with it.
The height in relation to the boys and the ship was very helpful.
It would be more helpful if the second kids height was in inches or if there was a meters to inches conversion.
 I would estimate that the ship is 69 inches. The reason is because the ship is completely in the middle of the two kids heights. One kid is 66 inches and the other is 72 inches. I figured it would be in the middle, therefore it looks to be 69 inches.
